"It has been over ten years since Spike Lee changed the face of film with his masterpiece,
DO THE RIGHT THING.
Lee, a pioneer of independent filmmaking, irrevocably changed the motion picture industry with this film. However, more importantly, since its release, a new tone has been brought to the discourse that exists between all races." Shawn Drury firstname.lastname@example.org
"Lee reminds us that it is not the job of the filmmaker to offer solutions, only to shine light on his reality. In an interview Spike Lee said 'All we can do is present the problems.' And he's right; films should be used as diving boards. It's our job to teach each other -- especially our children -- to swim." JoAnne Meyers, 'Scope! News and Notes Movie Magazine. Vol. 3 No. 2
